These are two try squares I just finished. They are 12” and 6” long, made from 1/8” brass and ebony. I have had a set of wooden try squares I made a year or so ago but I found that I sometimes cut into the blade with a marking knife. Since I have left over ebony from a previous project and came across some brass I decided to make new squares. I used epoxy to attached the brass parts to the ebony. Because I have a strip of brass along the bottom edge, the blade is lifted up an 1/8”. Therefore when using the square to check a corner, any debris will not keep the square from contacting both surfaces.
